Crepuscular (2013)

This is one of my ecosystem pieces, the second after Guarded Hearts. Here too are two creatures interacting: one (claves) has a regular pattern of behavior, organized so that it reminds one of breathing. The other creature (triangle) is seen adapting to said pattern. The gentle sound of the triangle was the primary inspiration behind this piece. Tempo ranges from quarter note = 90 to 120, and the various rhythms and their interaction are perhaps easier to hear in a faster interpretation. But I prefer slow tempo for the atmosphere it creates: it feels like a forest at night to me, even though it certainly doesn't sound like one.
